Review on Café Opus at Ikon
Café Opus is a casual venue attached to Birmingham's premier contemporary art gallery on the corner of fashionable Brindleyplace. The gallery itself is restored Victorian Gothic, in sharp contrast to the clean modern lines of the ground-floor café - which is something of an oasis of calm away from the hubbub of the city centre.
The food here is unpretentious, affordable and features British classics such as boiled egg and soldiers or creamy forest mushrooms and tarragon on toast served at any time of day or night. If you want something more filling, go for slow braised belly of Cornish lamb, spiced apricot and almond cous cous salad or the Brixham market fish of the day, sauté potatoes, local vegetables and citrus sauce. To finish, there's generally a crème brulee of the day or maybe profiteroles and chocolate sauce.
There's a concise wine list to complement food available by the glass as well as the bottle and there are tables outside for al fresco dining.
